Man reports armed robbery in Central Eastside
Portland officers are investigating a case of a man who said he was robbed at gunpoint early Saturday morning while stopped at a red light on Southeast Grand Avenue at Ankeny Street.
At 7:24 a.m. Oct. 4, police responded to the 1300 block of Northwest Glisan Street on the report that a driver had been robbed at gunpoint 45 minutes earlier on Southeast Grand Avenue. The victim told officers that he had waited to call 911 because he had to get to work.
According to the police report, the suspect ran up to the driver's side pointing the gun at the victim, demanding his wallet, which the victim handed over. Then the suspect ran around to the passenger side and attempted to get into the car but approaching traffic appeared to scare him off. The victim told police a second male walked in front of his car and dropped a bag during the robbery. The victim perceived that the second male may have been assisting the robbery suspect.
The victim described the suspect with the handgun as a white man in his 20s with black hair, a long black beard, wearing a long-sleeved gray shirt and shorts. The victim did not get a good look at the second suspect.
